Judge bars Trump from denying asylum to people entering USA illegally

BREAKING: A Federal Judge has ordered that the Administration must resume accepting asylum claims from migrants no matter where or how they entered the U.S.

But the 28-year-old businessman, who has scars on his face from an acid attack while he was protesting against the Nicaragua government, says he doesn't want to do anything illegal.

Civil rights groups sued, arguing that Trump's November 9 order violated administrative and immigration law. But Tigar's ruling notes that federal law says someone may seek asylum if they have arrived in the United States, 'whether or not at a designated port of arrival'.

US District Judge Jon Tigar in San Francisco issued a temporary restraining order against the president's proclamation, thus granting a request from human rights advocacy groups which had sued shortly after the order was announced.

Mr Gelernt said the ACLU had recently learned Mexican authorities have begun barring unaccompanied minors from applying at U.S. ports of entry.

Caravan participants began to arrive last week in Tijuana on the Mexican side of the United States border, which has put a strain on shelters where many will wait to seek asylum.

Afghanistan to form Advisory Board for Peace
Taliban leaders had not accepted any deadline set by the United States to wrap up talks, according to three Taliban officials. Abdul Sattar Sirat, an ethnic Tajik and Islamic scholar, was suggested as a candidate to lead an interim administration.


The final version of that order was upheld by the US Supreme Court on June 26 after a protracted legal battle.

He said that the administration will ultimately beat back Tigar's ruling with a favorable decision by the U.S. Supreme Court. But on November 9, Trump tried to overrule that law, signing a presidential proclamation ending the ability of migrants to request asylum if they enter the country illegally.

Pueblo Sin Fronteras, a group that has been assisting the migrants, rejected Nielsen's statements and said the lane closures were aimed at stoking "fury and impatience" by blocking US citizens who had to wait to gain entry from Tijuana.

The first of the caravans reached Tijuana last week, as migrants hope to cross into California and seek both U.S. asylum and protection of the state's "sanctuary" laws.

The federal judge's ruling against the asylum ban, however, will remain in effect for one month barring an appeal.

Earlier this month, President Trump issued a proclamation requiring asylum-seekers to present themselves at ports of entry. The "caravans" have begun arriving in Tijuana, Mexico, across the border from San Diego, California.

Jubeir also distanced Saudi Arabia from Central Intelligence Agency reports that it blamed the Saudi crown prince for Khashoggi's murder.


The US website Politico reports that 5,800 troops sent to bolster defences on the border will be home for Christmas.

Trump administration officials had argued that the order is meant to force asylum seekers to go through official border crossings.

Administration officials said the asylum law changes were meant to funnel migrants through official border crossings for speedy rulings instead of having them try to evade such crossings on the almost 2,000-mile (3,200-kilometer) border.

"There is no justifiable reason to flatly deny people the right to apply for asylum, and we can not send them back to danger based on the manner of their entry", he said.

US authorities process about 100 asylum claims each day at San Ysidro, meaning wait times will be long.
